Warm, sunny November day...

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Hi..I took advantage of the beautiful day and put up the Christmas lights..well hubby helped with some..then some of them wouldn't light so I need a couple new strands for next time I'm in town..I hunted every where for the greenery and flowers and bows I put in my hanging baskets..I finally found them so those are out too!

I also did a major clean up in the porch..looks much better now. One of the jobs was to make up the firestarter bags. I had a 5 gal pail of twigs and pinecones I picked up earlier and I just put them in brown paper lunch bags and tie off with twine. They get the fire started easy :)

This week is week 7 in the 5% fall challenge..the extra is to start an exercise streak..I was going to get on my bike for 30 minutes for my streak but ended up too busy with out active jobs, hopefully tomorrow!! It's hard to believe the challenge is almost over..we're almost at the end of November!! I see I'm quite close to reaching a new level in Spark points..I think my goal for spark points for December is to reach the next level!! It will be less than 2000 pts at this rate so I think I can do it!!

We are having a quiet weekend so I'm just relaxing on the couch with the laptop, tv and background noise of hubby snoring..haha...I played a few games and talked to one of my sisters on the phone, earlier I was chatting on line with my friend who moved to New Zealand...this challenge has been fun and one of the places we visited was New Zealand, another was the Grand Canyon...a place where we just visited in June when we were in Vegas..the high light of the holiday was the helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon!! Now we're off to Tahiti... makes me think of the Eddy Murphy movie..where he says..Neckit in Tahiti.. lol!!

Well..time to get some sleep..I am almost over all my flu/cold symptoms, but still quite tired..even tho i really slept in today..

Thanks for dropping by ..keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

    Oh Wow! The your firestarter idea. I'm going to start collecting twigs. Not to many pinecones around, but plenty of twigs. Even in the summer we like to have a fire in our firepit on the deck. Thanks for the great tip! emoticon

    Wow -- you just keep moving. Love the paper bag firestarter idea. I loved my fireplace when I lived in Kansas -- now in Florida, not a real option.

    Enjoy your couch time!!
